South Manchester Book Group

If you enjoy talking about books over a quiet drink, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We normally meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm but whilst the contagion lasts and we REMAIN INDOORS we'll become a virtual  bookgroup and meet online.

Please use the Contact Us form [on the web version of the site] to be added to our mailing list and receive the online meeting invitations.

There's a meeting every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up* with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's all very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

Our reading list, past, present, and future, appears here and there's a shorter version of upcoming books here.

* Do not turn up — REMAIN INDOORS !

One of my favourite modern authors, but this is not her best. By basing it to closely on real events MA has produced a dull book. AJP

Is anybody welcome to join? I have just moved to the area and would love to join a book club. Also love Alias Grace :)

Hello - I have also recently moved to Didsbury. Is it OK to just turn up?

Just turning up is fine, we're normally sitting with some books, but if you can't spot us it could be because people are running late!

Interested to know feeling on the book from the meeting. Shame I couldn't be there due to where I live. What's next? AJP
